Welcome to Wilgus Hall
Wilgus Hall, named after James A. Wilgus and built in 1963, accommodates approximately 60 men and 170 women. Wilgus is located on the corner of Greewood Avenue and College Drive. Wilgus Hall was an all-women’s residence hall but it became co-ed for the 2017-2018 school year. Each floor features a kitchenette and lounge area for the convenience of its residents. Wilgus hall has a newly renovated basement with study rooms, a computer room, laundry facility, ice machine, and offers The Lynn Collins Conference Room that features a TV and a kitchen in a large meeting and dining area. The conference area is well utilized throughout the year by many organizations on campus.
Wilgus Hall sponsors an annual Women’s Weekend and partners with McGregor Hall to do one of the first all-hall programs of the year. Wilgus Hall is also home to the Women's Wellness library and Interest Community.

October can be a stressful time with quizzes and exams but there are so many ways to de-stress. Participate in all of the upcoming events and take care of yourself. For information on Counseling Services follow this link. For information on Tutoring Services please click here.
Safety Tip of the Month: Be an active bystander. There are various ways to intervene and provide assistance to others. Intervention can be as simple as saying hi to a person that seems to be in an uncomfortable situation. Not all intervention requires you to make contact with a potential perpetrator. A simple hello or acting like you haven’t seen a person in a long time, can break up the situation and allow an individual to leave. Most importantly, don’t assume that someone else will take care of it.
Have an excellent October Wilgus Hall!
Wilgus Hall, Resident Director
